KutlesicAbstractBackground and objectiveRemifentanil is used to attenuate maternal hemodynamic response to intubation and surgical stress during Induction–Delivery period of cesarean section. The goal was to compare the effects of two remifentanil dosing regimens on oxidative stress level, in correlation with its hemodynamic and neonatal effects.MethodsFifty-one patients, 17 per group, enrolled for elective cesarean section were randomly ...

G Arora, N SahniJournal of Postgraduate Medicine 2020 66(1):51-53 Sheehan's syndrome (SS) is caused by infarction of the pituitary gland usually precipitated by hypotension due to massive uterine hemorrhage during the peripartum period. Once SS develops, it becomes a major comorbidity for the young females and predisposes them to further medical, obstetric, and anesthetic complications. Herein, we report the perioperative anesthetic management of a 28-year-old female, already diagnosed with SS precipitated by urosepsis and septicemic shock in a previous pregnancy, now presenting with twin pregnancy for elective cesare...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Chinese Medical Sciences Journal, Volume 34, Issue 4Author(s): Xu Li, Biye Wu, Mingzhu Zhang, Le ShenObjectiveNeuraxial block is the most common anesthesia method for cesarean section (CS). However, for some urgent and high-risk cesarean delivery, general anesthesia (GA) also plays a very important role. We aimed to find out the reasons of choosing GA for CS in our center and the factors that may be related to the maternal and fetal outcomes.MethodsWe retrospectively selected parturients who had CS procedures under GA in Peking Union Medical College Hospital from January 1, 2014 to De...

We present a case of a 44-year-old pregnant female known for DCM with low ejection fraction who underwent an elective cesarean section and tubal ligation. The patient was transferred to the intensive care unit in a stable condition with a favorable outcome. Awareness about the appropriate anesthetic management for this type of patients is of paramount importance because similar cases are likely to be encountered with the advances in modern medicine.

Abstract Successful management of a pregnant patient with complex congenital heart disease is a challenge for anesthesiologists, requiring thorough knowledge of the impact of pregnancy on the cardiac lesion. Hearing and speech impaired patients pose a barrier to effective communication between the patient and the doctors, thus increasing the anxiety and risk of complications. Here, we present a case of a hearing and speech impaired woman with the rare and dangerous Eisenmenger's syndrome, presenting for an emergency cesarean section (CS).

ConclusionCurrent birth weight higher than the previous newborn weight in a cesarean section for arrest of descent is associated with lower likelihood of successful vaginal birth after cesarean delivery and therefore should be taken in consideration during fetal weight estimation and the decision on the mode of delivery. This issue should be explored in future prospective large-cohort studies.

We present a 31 year-old patient who underwent an emergency cesarean section. She lost consciousness and had apnea that started 10 minutes after successful spinal anesthesia and repeated three times for a total of 25 minutes, despite the stable hemodynamics of the patient. The case was considered a subdural block, and the patient was provided with respiratory support. The subdural block is expected to start slowly (approximately 15-20minutes), but in this case, after about 10 minutes of receiving anesthesia, the patient suddenly had a loss of consciousness. After the recovery of conscious...

Background: Studies have shown the efficacy of norepinephrine in the treatment of maternal hypotension during cesarean section by comparing it to treatment with phenylephrine. However, few studies have compared the efficacy of norepinephrine to ephedrine. Methods: Ninety-seven women undergoing elective cesarean section were administered norepinephrine at 4 μg/minute (group N; n = 48) or ephedrine at 4 mg/minute (group E; n = 49) immediately postspinal anesthesia, with an on-off titration to maintain systolic blood pressure (SBP) at 80% to 120% of baseline. A rescue bolus of 8 μg norepinephrine was ...
